Genitals are referred to in an anatomical discussion and we see pants being removed from the man being discussed (this is seen from behind a curtain and he is facing backwards from the camera so there is no actual nudity).
None, except for a few kisses. There are one or two scenes that show John Merrick without clothes, albeit in silhouette.

A cruel hospital caretaker dares a drunken woman to kiss Mr. Merrick’s deformed lips. More disturbing than sexual.


Film review:Translated by www.rabudo-ru.com


I don’t feel the quiet and peaceful narration and the pity of the target people. What I feel is more a false impression of human nature. The hypocrisy of civilized society, the truth of primitive wildness. No matter what lady kissed him at the beginning or the warm applause of the audience at the end, it is more to tell others and yourself that there is still a small grain of compassion. Just as people struggle to create a good image and return to their original appearance in an instant, people are also struggling to manage their own civilization, and then let their civilization and ugliness be revealed between countless hands. It makes me laugh when I see elephant people drinking tea, reading their lines and perfume. If you don’t follow these, is elephant man really not human? That’s what he thinks. He wants to integrate into the so-called civilized society through these methods. But no one told him it was wrong, because no one knew it was wrong, nor how wrong we were. When the elephant man is frightened when he sees himself in the mirror, I don’t know how many people see themselves at the same time.
